Hi. I am posting another photo of this marker. The top of the marker is missing and the bottom is either missing or it is encased in cement below ground level. It seems that the date of death is missing or below ground level. There is no other portion of this marker nearby. Sorry.

Marilyn Pederson
Hannah "Anna" (Emory) Collins
I have only this:

Source; Ledger written by Luman Jones Collins, started to establish the identity of heirs to the "David Sutton estate" dated 16 April 1888, Decatur, Illinois, handed down to my cousin Alexis Collins and in turn given to me, Marilyn Pederson.

Benjamin Collins, b. March 3,1787 Va. d.Feb 16 1871, married Hanna Emery, b. Jun 5, 1787, d. Iowa, he buried Illinois, she buried Iowa

The rest I got from census reports. I have no proof she is buried in the same Cemetery as her son Benjamin, I got that off of I contacted the person with that information, so far no response, I will leave her memorial there until I find out differently. Thanks for your interest, are you related to the Collins or Emory? Marilyn

RE: Mary Grauer Chapman
I think that conclusion comes from 1900 census, which indicates both Adam and Emily married 43 years. Correct for Adam, but not for Emily.

Adam married in 1857. The 1860 Census shows Adam, wife Mary and (son) William D. Daughter Mary (Chapman) was born June 1860, after the census.

If the photo in her Findagrave memorial had higher resolution, you would be able to see that on the inscription.
"Mary E.; wife of Adam J. Grauer, Born Apr. 30, 1839; Died Sept. 12, 1861"

According to a marriage certificate and a family bible (which I have seen and transcribed), Adam and Emily were married 29 September 1962. I have recently been unable to locate the current current whereabouts of those artifacts.

Most later documents (census, obits, etc.) tend to support (or at least, not refute) that Mary Chapman was Emily's daughter. But she was actually a step-daughter.

RE: Laura Phillips
You're welcome! I'm currently working on scanning the map of the Wacousta Cemetery if you're interested. It has a lot of names on it, but I think some are left out since many of the older headstones are illegible. I'll upload it on the Wacousta Cemetery page when I'm finished.

RE: Adelia Gorsline Bement
We have a question for you-there is a Loues who died at age 15yrs and we could not read his last name on the marker, but he is buried between Grosline and Mathews. We put Mathews as last name, but wondered if you have anything for a Grosline child?

Thanks, just thought we would ask just in case.

RE: Adelia Gorsline Bement
It was part of the chase of the whole cemetery. That cemetery is so old and the markers are such a mess, that it is a wonder any of them are readable anymore. She may have had a marker-many did not and there is no orginal cemetery records.

RE: David H. Gorsline
You are welcome. We have been rephotographing Cabot cemetery as many of the markers were unreadable the first time around, but we have learned a couple of tricks to make them more clear. We are going out next week to finish it up, so state tune for more updates. Got any other markers you are looking for?

Charles Hall Gage
Hello. First, thank you for your suggestion. I think Find A Grave works best when contributors collaborate. However, when I looked back at Charles Hall Gage's local obituary, and that of James P. Gage, it looks to me that I have the memorial correct. I may have to go looking for Mary Jane Hall Gae, who apparently was Charles' mother.
